The annual AOPA Summit is coming up in a few weeks, in Fort Worth, Texas, but AOPA said on Tuesday this will be the last time it holds the event.  "Convention plans for 2014 have been cancelled," AOPA said in a news release.  AOPA said it plans to redirect the time and resources spent on the Summit to hosting more "grass-roots" events and visiting community airports.  "I want our members to make a personal connection with AOPA, and that is best achieved by meeting them where they fly," said Mark Baker, AOPA president, who took office last month.

The iFlightPlanner Crew will be setup with Sennheiser Aviation, the presenting sponsor of iFlightPlanner for iPad, in Booth #1307 at the Fort Worth Convention Center next month.
